Yeah but you can convert 1000 ship req easily , takes 5 or 8 matches to build up enough ship req for the a wing?

Fleet req just unlocks 2 ships and Npc crew - hardly a game breaking advantage.
You can use purple req converted from ship req to buy skills.

OK? You still have to play those matches and then upgrade the ship that you are buying.
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

CC are not used to purchase skills, the Req are. Some players can pay CCs to convert them, sure, but that doesn't mean you can't still earn Req. Face it, subscribers will level faster and have more gameplay available than F2P/Preferred players. Subscribers get free CC every pay period.

STOP THINKING F2P MEANS FREE. It DOESN'T. F2P = extended trial. If you like it, pay for it, if you don't then quit. I don't know where you were taught that you deserve to have things handed to you for free, but whoever said it lied.

So your complaint is that someone who spent a lot of time playing many ships can put the req from all their ships into 1 ship.

in effect giving them 1 good ship, and the rest as all base ships.

You do realize they are not magically gaining more points, in anyway.

another player could just play their 1 ship and make it as good in the same amount of time and not spend cartel coins.

So your saying in 10 matches you can convert enough ship req via CC market to start buying tier 3 skills, you think this is fair?

What are you smoking, and do you play SF? Second day players with almost full tier skill set, over 10000 purple req earned? Req bought via CC transfer? That's not P2W?
